United VARs Celebrates 15 Years
– July 2021, Ratingen, Germany –
In March 2006, a group of SAP Value Added Resellers came together in a small meeting room at CeBIT in Hanover, Germany. The plan was to form a global community of partners that would support small and medium-sized enterprises in implementing international SAP projects. The group’s vision was to be able to help customers deal with their business objectives across all of their operations internationally, by providing them with in-country partners familiar with local and legal requirements, and with specific industry knowledge. And so it was, United VARs was founded.
Alejandro Daniel O’Davoren, Deputy General Manager at Seidor
Before the 2006 meeting, Alejandro Daniel O’Davoren from Seidor had met with All for One. “We were struggling to know how to serve our customers in their subsidiaries abroad, but none could face a complex and costly global expansion on our own. The solution became clear, we would create a powerful network of SMB partners. All for One would act as Seidor in Germany, and Seidor as All for One in Spain. The idea was simple but needed to be based on one main feature: full trust in our members. We built a network starting with a few members, carefully adding new partners over the years and this has led us to what we are today.
Detlef Mehlmann, Managing Director United VARs
“I remember that day in March 2006 when the first six members came together to initiate the United VARs contract, and we immediately started searching for more members all over the world. In 2007, Answerthink in the US joined and in 2008 and 09, the first members from APJ joined us. Today, we are 56 members in almost 100 countries all over the world.
